Kyle Pitts was the splash draft pick at fourth overall for the Falcons in the NFL Draft this offseason. Pitts is an acceptable blocker, but his value and impact comes as a split-out receiving weapon and one of the most fluid tight end athletes in recent memory. As a result, Pitts' pedigree surpassed even Vernon Davis as the high-end outlier since 2000. Pitts offers mismatch potential regardless of defenses aligning linebackers, cornerbacks, or safeties in coverage. Julio Jones' departure with a June trade to Tennessee frees up targets for Pitts to be more involved in the offense in Year 1. Rookie tight ends are historically slow starters, but Pitts breaks the mold as a route runner and super-sized fluid athlete to expect a prolonged ramp-up period in the passing game.
